Here’s What’s Happening At The Beauty Changes Lives Experience

The 8th Annual Beauty Changes Lives Experience is happening on April 19, 2020, and tickets are on sale now! Co-presented by The Beauty Changes Lives Foundation, America’s Beauty Show and Pivot Point, the premiere fundraising event will convene professional beauty’s finest all under one roof to raise money for scholarships, mentorship and inspiration to emerging professionals in the beauty and wellness industries.


Here’s This Year’s Legacy Award Honoree

The 2020 event will blend longstanding traditions including the runway show and Beauty Changes Lives Legacy Award—that celebrates a legacy honoree who pays it forward with mentoring, giving back and elevating the industry—plus exciting new award categories. This year, Dermalogica Co-Founder and Chief Visionary Jane Wurwand will accept the Legacy Award recognizing her leadership, vision, entrepreneurial spirit and lifelong commitment to professional development.


Introducing The Make Your Mark Awards

Beauty Changes Lives is excited to celebrate the next generation of professional beauty with the all-new Make Your Mark Awards. Whereas the Legacy Award pays tribute to trailblazers who have made indelible marks on the industry, the Make Your Mark category will celebrate two professionals poised to make their mark with a career in beauty. The two awardees will be announced later this year. The awards complement the Make Your Mark national recruiting campaign targeting the fiercely independent and entrepreneurial Gen Z and highlighting the pathways, possibilities and potential available in the professional beauty sector.


Beauty Changes Lives Executive Director Lauren Conway says the 2020 Beauty Changes Lives Experience will feature testimonies from promising talent “discovered” through Beauty Changes Lives scholarship competitions. “As we have awarded more than 500 scholarships, we’ve helped create hundreds of truly life changing stories—several of which will be on display during the 8th annual Beauty Changes Lives Experience,” says Lauren. 


“The Beauty Changes Lives Event held during America’s Beauty Show is an opportunity for all of the industry to come together across areas of specialty, geographic region and stage of professional development,” says Beauty Changes Lives President Lynelle Lynch. “By celebrating emerging talent, we are letting the world see the inclusive, nurturing nature of the professional beauty industry where established icons support those just beginning their career journeys.”
